[FR Doc. 2011–19438 Filed 8–1–11; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4310–33–P DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR National Park Service [4240–CEBE–409] Record of Decision National Park Service, Interior. Notice of Availability of the Record of Decision on the General Management Plan/Environmental Impact Statement for Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historic Park. AGENCY: ACTION: Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended [42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(C)], the National Park Service (NPS) announces the availability of the Record of Decision for the General Management Plan/Environmental Impact Statement (GMP/EIS) for Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historic Park (NHP) in Frederick, Shenandoah, and Warren Counties, Virginia. The Regional Director, Northeast Region, approved the Record of Decision for the GMP/EIS, selecting Action Alternative D, the NPS preferred alternative, as described in the Final GMP/EIS issued on January 21, SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46321 2011. The Record of Decision (ROD) includes a statement of the decision made, a synopsis of other alternatives considered, the basis for the decision, a description of the environmentally preferable alternative, a finding on impairment of park resources and values, a listing of measures to minimize environmental harm, and an overview of public involvement in the decision-making process. The approved General Management Plan will guide long-term management of Cedar Creek and Belle Grove NHP. As soon as practicable, the NPS will begin to implement the selected alternative. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Diann Jacox, Superintendent, Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historical Park, 7718 1⁄2; Main Street, Middletown, Virginia 22645, (540) 868– 9176. Cedar Creek and Belle Grove NHP was created by Congress in December 2002 to help preserve, protect, and interpret a nationally significant Civil War landscape and antebellum plantation; to tell the rich story of Shenandoah Valley history; to preserve historic, natural, cultural, military, and scenic resources; and to serve as a focal point within the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields National Historic District. Cedar Creek and Belle Grove NHP is a partnership park, currently with limited property in federal ownership, that works collaboratively with other entities who provide the foundation for protecting, preserving, and interpreting park resources by virtue of their ownership of significant acreage within the park, their commitment to a shared preservation ethic, their willingness to provide visitor services and public access, and their consent to manage their property as part of the national historical park. The approved general management plan provides the NPS and key partners with the necessary framework to guide the management of the park for the next 15 to 20 years. This is the first general management plan for the park; it is intended to be a useful, long-term decision-making tool, providing a logical and trackable rationale for decisions about protection and public use of park resources. The Final GMP/EIS presented and evaluated four management alternatives developed around the need to define an appropriate role for the NPS at the park. Among the alternatives considered, Action Alternative D, the selected alternative, best protects the diversity of park resources while also maintaining a range of quality visitor experiences.
